Gets a 1 star from me due to the fact of it trying to force you to install a bunch of bloatware spam.

They make the text super tiny so you can hardly read it during the install, and there are a ton of things it wants to install besides the program itself.

Update: after typing this review, I realized thing thing has already installed spam on my computer even though I told it not to during the install. Now I have stupid ads popping on the bottom of my browser windows just viewing the Amazon web page. Stay away from this crap.

Good program, I replaced Everest with it some time ago. It annoyingly installs the 'Ask Toolbar' even if you tick it not to, which though is easily removed. However as the program is free still 5 stars.

I've only used it for a few minutes, but so far it seems like a nice useful piece of software

PC Wizard used to be great replacement for Everest Free, best one to be precise. But now, after CPU ID acquired PC Wizard from previous owner, they remove Video Card detection if you do not have driver installed?!?

Since I personally used to use PC Wizard for components detection for PC's I'm repairing and I need Video Card detection or else I have to open PC that I'm repairing, I had to find better solution.

HwInfo32 is program that DO detect Video Card even that you do not have drivers installed. And PC Wizard is not useful any more :( Too bad

Sometimes I learn things the hard way:
install this thing,
run it,
froze machine (while "reading sensor"),
power off,
restart,
UNINSTALL,
forget it.

No Graphics Displays for the benchmarking tabs. With the last few updates I had skewed graphics, now none at all. The only version that works for me seems to be 1.84. I've had problems with all the updates since then.

hmmm .....whoever wrote (can't remember right offhand )..that "pcwiz. is a pos.".........i hate to break it to you , but that's either billy boy (windows).......or the way you setup your comp.
i have it on both mine , mom's ...(anyone's who email's me for help ) i tell to get it so they know the info i need to help them ....etc .etc. etc..all the one's i work on for people ..-i think the point is made-.....i have had a lockup or two on various comps. too..and am NOT so quick to blame pcw , the vast majority of the time , if it is not some downloaded crapware drivers interfereing . it is just, as i said ,
the inherant tweakiness of windows.....FANTASTIC.
program that has saved not only myself, but MANY others i have been able to help through the detailed info on all the billions of friggin numbers one needs to get anywhere with helping someone over the net. ( most people dunno pc3200
from 20 gig )......pcw has been of VAST help .
you can just tellem download .tell me what it says in "x".....on "x" page....and there ya go
on anything from a pretty vicious system like my primary (asus a8n sli- premium / athlon fx-60 running 2.8 (at 40c -hehhehheh) and 2 gigs pc3200 )....to some poor limpalong critter from the jurrassic age.....had VERY few problems.....and a LOT ! ...of valuable info =assistance.......ummmm......for free ?.....how ya gonna gripe about that ?

Update: I just installed a new video card and it still locks up on Global Benchmark. I didnt think it would change anything, just thought I would retest it. Funny that it worked great as version 1.84 (which I now use) and locks up with 1.85. If it was driver or compatability issues why didnt it happen with 1.84?

This version locks up when I try and do a Global Benchmark. I have no problems with version 1.84.

Version 1.85 reads my core temps, with my E8400, @ 27°/26°.

Speed fan reads 42°/41° (so does HWMonitor) and Real Temp reads 32°/31°. Version 1.84 shows 42°/41°.
